humming our theme song. >> brian: only one they know. >> gretchen: welcome everybody. petraeus scandal appears to be getting bigger . this is a made for movie situation already. >> brian: it is a movie i don't want to see. >> gretchen: certainly more details coming out. it is many things and now another top commander in afghanistan. general john allen who took over for david petraeus when he kebecame commander in afghanistan. he is under investigation for exchanging thousands of e-mails from kelly. who was a social liason for central command and he she had a relationship with the petraeus, and also e-mails, we don't know what way. it was in enough of a way for an investigation to ensue. >> steve: the way the f.b.i. is depicting it, they
6:03 am
discovered 20,000 to 30,000 page e-mail. they describe it as potentially inappropriate but declined to comment. there is a commander allen but declined to comment on the nature of the relationship with kelly in the yellow dress and the general with all of the stars and bars. >> brian: what the heck is this about? she was a social liason and by the way, i didn't know we needed one. 20,000 to 30,000. i could not write 20,000. >> i e-mail you. you respond with one word. >> brian: i don't think. got to get dressed >> chris: kelly, even though it is the other woman paula broadwell who had the relationship, that
6:04 am
is kelly right there. it was paula broadwell who had the relationship with general petraeus. why would she hire a lawyer and judy smith who is an expert at crisis management. we know. and they out about the 20,000 to 30,000 e-mail about to become public. >> brian: we know that general petraeus is a brilliant military mind and general allen was doing a good job in afghanistan and going to be elevated in a position in nato. his confirmation hearings are on delay and would-be replacement is asked to secretary of defense is asked to speed up the conference hearings. america is the big loser here. we lose two military minds who have the respect of those were in the military.
6:05 am
>> gretchen: don't forget. >> brian: allen is in the place for a while. >> gretchen: we don't know if he will resign. don't forget general mcchrystal and you factor in the last three years what happened with the top level generals it is amazing and because he gave the interview to rolling stone magazine that was derogatory to president obama. jill kelly, when she went to the e-mail and got e-mails, it turns out e-mails were not threats. they were not i am going to get rid of you. they were in most situations bleak and not that threatening they never thought it would turn into anything criminal and so why? >> steve: the answer is
6:06 am
broadwell and petraeus set up a g-mail account and this is the same technique used by terrorist and cyber crime people and drug dealers and what they do. they set up a gmail and both people know the pass word and they write on a draft and save the draft and they communicate that way and when the f.b.i. started to look into the hreats, they realize this connects to petraeus. we wonder whether his account has been hacked. they set it up to get around it turned out to be a big red flag. >> brian:ip think f.b.i. agent who is doing the investigation who was pulled off of the case because he was too obsessive and sent a shirtless shot to jill kelly. >> steve: a long time. >> brian: it seems to be permanent and like i have a friend who is a cop . this time your friend is an
6:07 am
f.b.i. agent and i got e-mails and can you find who it s. like run the plates as a favor and it gets bigger unless they knew it would get bigger. >> gretchen: i don't know there is many unanswered questions. the original e-mails from anonymous paula broadwell were like a cat fight and were not threats y. would the f.b.i. put resources into that? that's the big question for me this morning. in the meantime vernon lobe who was a ghostwriter the book that paula broadwell wrote about pit pet, he is responding about what kind of relationship he saw between broadwell and pept pet. >> what was a conversation is why general petraeus was granting paula broadwell the kind of acess her. i never understood it.
6:08 am
but i rationalize it in my own mind it was something he could control approximate because it was so public, that both of them felt there was never any danger of it becoming anything other than than you know, journalist subject and professional relationship. >> steve: some investigative reporter. he's write know books before. his wife thinks he is the most clueless person in america and he did not connect the dots and see something else going on there. leon panet is was asked to comment on this stuff and in particular the benghazi attack and where were the responders leon. listen carefully to what he's about to say. and in the sound byte. he said we have to have advance notice that something
6:09 am
is about to happen. what? here's leon panetta. >> the fundmental fact is this, in order for us to be able to move quickly, we have to have advance notice that something is going to happen and in this case we didn't have that. and when we were informed the attack was already happening and to be able to respond adequately while an attack is going on made it difficult to be able to move quickly as we would have wanted to. >> brian: couple of things with that statementment why didn't you know something could happen quickly. 9/11 was coming up they knew the terrorist threat and they were vulnerable to cell operate a event in the libyan war. we really need a tip off that something bad is going to happen. how can you do that. >> gretchen: that's not how
6:10 am
the u.s. military works i wouldn't think. >> brian: that's not how the koches or law enforcement works. >> steve: sometimes you have to ad lib and they were not raid. >> gretchen: look at the thwarted terrorist attacks in new york city maybe that will make you think about how preventative law enforcement works and preventative military works. >> steve: what about blowing the hole in the consulate wall and 40 people got out and that was prior warning. >> gretchen: there are other stories making news today. you probably seen the head of the world's most famous anti-virus cum. john mcafee wanted for murder? police in belize want to question him about the shooting death of a neighbor. fall file would a complaint
6:11 am
for mcafee for firing guns. mcafee had recently experimented with drugs and arrested on gun charges. >> senator john kerry will be nominated to president obama's cabinet but not as secretary of state. president obama may ask the vietnam veteran to replace leon panetta instead it is unlikely he will stay on for the full second term. as for the secretary of state position it is widely believed that the president will nominate susran rice. rice appeared on five different sunday talk show in the aftermath of the terrorist attack and blaming the anti-muslim video saying it was terror. >> republican congressman paul ryan breaking his silence a week after he and mitt romney

6:19 am
the white house had to know. >> sure. and bob miller is a very honorable guy. he gave tremendous acess to the f.b.i. for my book, but i think he may have rationalized to himself it was not a criminal probe as far as petraeus goes and up to the white house to decide the action in terps of removing him and when. and i could see him justifying it in his own mind. petraeus was in the position for four or five months and he could have been black mail and would all of the top secrets in this country and no excuse to allow him to stay in office. 92 ron, we have more questions if you stay there live. terrifying moment from wwe. >> not part of the entertainment tonight. it is a real-life situation.

6:27 am
story. >> steve: you think it is a good spin to make petraeus look better. >> and make the f.b.i. look better. it takes six month to investigate a simple matter of threatening e-mails, and that they would wait and allow petraeus to stay in office. doesn't make since. >> brian: you said four or five directors he knows were having affairs and they stayed in office and no one knew about it and there was a procedure and no one endorsed the act. the former president of united states, president clinton is lauded as an international rock star. >> i don't think we can lower our standard and allow someone with top secret to be with the possibility of black mail. it doesn't mean we should turn a blind eye to these things. the cia director and

>> gretchen: good morning, everyone. it's tuesday, november 13, 2012. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks for sharing your time with us today. we start with a fox news alert. shocking twist. another general under investigation now. this time it's the nation's top commander in afghanistan, general john allen. why was he allegedly sending 30,000 pages of e-mails to the same woman who exposed general petraeus? >> brian: exactly one week after losing a hard fought battle, paul ryan speaking out. >> i'm still a house budget chair, so as i see things, it's part of my job to be part of the solution to try and make this
7:01 am
divided government work. >> brian: more from the former vp nominee and what he plans to do next. >> steve: ever wond what are the end of the world will look like? >> nobody will be going out to the supermarket, to the gas station. nobody will be going to work. slowly the sewer plants will shut down. you will have to deal with some horrible, wicked, evil people. >> steve: actually that kind of sounds like what happened in new york a few weeks ago. >> brian: or by my house. >> steve: those are the stars of doomsday preppers. an entire family prep to go make it out of armageddon alive. "fox & friends," hour two for a wet tuesday from new york city. anybody else want to put their heads in? come on over here. we're going to win by a smile in a moment. let's start. >> gretchen: sorry about that.
7:02 am
i didn't realize that steve was coming back on camera. >> brian: i don't think they picked it up. >> gretchen: they just got my entire profile. >> brian: you were teasing your appearance. during steve's tease of the show. >> gretchen: didn't intend to. >> steve: the big story today, we told you yesterday about the general petraeus scandal as it was revealed he was having this atear with this woman, paula broadwell. and they had been exchanging e-mail or something like that. well, now there is a new commander caught up in things. we're talking about general john allen, the commander for u.s. nato forces in afghanistan. as it turns out, the original whistle blower in the paula broadwell case, jill kelly, apparently jill kelly and that man right there, general allen, exchanged between 20 and 30,000 pages -- >> brian: how that could be. >> steve: that's hundreds of day over several years. according to the f.b.i. and the pentagon, they have declined to
7:03 am
comment on the nature of the relationship. let's just say they were friendly, at least e-mail wise. >> gretchen: they are saying that it was inappropriate communication. so it doesn't sound like they were joking with each other. >> steve: potentially inappropriate. >> gretchen: well, yeah. alleged. but i don't think they used the word inappropriate, unless they were pretty sure that's how they felt the tone was. in the meantime what, does this mean for general allen? he's been in charge of afghanistan? he was supposed to move up. now they'll put that promotion on hold. so while they do this investigation. the whole thing is so interesting about now this jill kelly connection, she's this sociallyian son, volunteer gig in tampa. but what was she being social about? apparently she was e-mailing a lot and getting e-mails originally from paula broadwell, very good friends with general petraeus and his wife. now she has this very good relationship with general allen which remains a question mark. she went to the f.b.i. agent who was a friend, initially, to tell
7:04 am
him about these threatening e-mail she was getting from an anonymous source, who turned out to be paula broadwell. what's interesting is that the source is saying the e-mails were not really threatening. so why did the investigate it to begin it. they said it was a close call. at most the messages were harassing. the cyber squad had to seek the cyber book to see if there was legal cause to see if there was a case. >> steve: it was a cyber question because it was the top spy in the country involved in an unappropriate relationship via the internet. the f.b.i. agent at the field office in tampa, jill kelly, apparently before the investigation started, at some point he had sent her a shirtless photograph of himself. okay, then they become friends, continue to be friends. she calls him in, says, look, i'm getting all these e-mail. he was eventually taken off the
7:05 am
case because they felt that he had grown obsessed with the matter. then months go by. he's taken off the case. he actually feels like this is all being swept under the rug. so what does he do? he acts as a whistle blower. he goes o a congressman from wisconsin, dave way cert, and told him the story. he passes it on to eric cantor. a couple of republicans now in the month of ago. >> the attorney general did know. when the f.b.i. is investigating the c.i.a., how could that get by the president of the united states? how could that not be the first thing you hear? by the way, we got a problem in libya. afghanistan continues to be a challenge. and the c.i.a. director is being investigated by the f.b.i i know you got to run. and i'm not even saying, if i'm president of the united states and i only find out on election day about this, i am furious! how dare you keep this secret from me for six months.
7:06 am
>> gretchen: you have to keep in mind that apparently they were keeping the secret of benghazi from him. if you look at the time line. >> brian: that there was a problem there. >> gretchen: remember, joe biden famously said in the debate with paul ryan that we didn't know about any of that, soaves forgetting himself potentially and the president. but to me, the big question is as we try and piece together all these details about this behavior, what's getting lost in the shuffle? what's getting lost is the real story, which is what actually happened in benghazi and what was the united states' responsibility and relationship and who was to blame for putting out that videotape that that was to blame initially? it's going to get lost in the shuffle potentially and discredits the military in the process because you have two big-time general, not excusing their behavior, but that's what the story is going to become about, instead of what really happened in benghazi. >> brian: last night, the f.b.i. broke in, but just went into an empty paula broadwell house and
7:07 am
spent four hours, took at least two of her computers out because somebody unearthed a university denver speech she gave at which time she might have said something that was top secret and we're not ready for public viewing for that audience. >> steve: as you can see, she was not in the house at the time. f.b.i. agents photographed her. apparently at some point, a prankster -- >> brian: no one talks about anything anymore. >> steve: a prankster called while the f.b.i. agents were inside, they called domino's and the delivery guy showed up with pizza for the f.b.i. guys. they did not answer the door. what's interesting about paul will broadweller -- paula broadwell is here is this journalist writing this book. why did she have top secret documents on her computer? this is a big issue. now, petraeus told the f.b.i.
7:08 am
and investigators, didn't come from me, could it come from somebody else in afghanistan or something like that? but if the f.b.i. takes your computer and you've got classified documents, you can figure you're going to wind up with a visit from the f.b.i. >> gretchen: it officially within from a movie to a mini series. >> brian: by the way, you getting revenge from yesterday, it's like 120 degrees yesterday. yesterday you said it was cold. on tuesday we pay the price. >> gretchen: what does this have to do -- you're heating up because of the content of what we're discussing. >> brian: possibly. let's talk about paul ryan of the he said he was sitting with the romneys on election night and extremely sad. they really thought they were going to win and knew for sure it wasn't going to go their way when they saw the turnout in urban america. and when the results came in for ohio and virginia, they knew it was over. paul ryan. >> i got reelected to represent the first district in wisconsin. still the house budget chair. so as i see things, it's part of
7:09 am
my job to be part of the solution to try and make this divided government work 'cause the issues we talked about seven days ago are still the issues we have to teal with today. the economy. a debt crisis. we've got a health care system problem. i worry about our military. so these same problems exist and we're going to have to find a way of finding common ground to make them work. >> steve: you've got paul ryan yesterday in wisconsin. brian, you toughed on turn joy -- touched on turnout. >> brian: i deny it. i never said it. >> steve: the reason they lost is turnout. they were happy going in to the election. they felt like their models all showed that they would win on election day. but then as they started getting the information into orca, this data mining thing that they had going in boston, it was way off. >> brian: i've always said don't trust models. >> gretchen: we've gone from
7:10 am
domino to heating studios to orca? >> steve: it's the name of their computer. they started noticing embossed with orca on election day that while their turnout was good, the other side's turnout was much better. that is why they lost the election. >> gretchen: let's do some other headlines for you now for tuesday. you probably seen his name hundreds of times on your computer screen. but the founder of the world's most famous antivirus company, john mcafee wanted for murder. police in belize want to question him about the shooting death his neighbor. the two had been at odds after fall filed a complaint against mcafe, for firing guns. it's said he was arrested on gun charges. he wanted to blow up the home of former president george w. bush. in a few hours, he could be locked up for the rest of his life. a judge will sentence the saudi man in a texas courtroom today.

to business, moody credit agency says the united states is still in danger of a downgrade financially unless it acts quickly to address the fiscal cliff and the gigantic massive deficit. >> brian: charles payne is here with more. you surprised by this? >> no, i'm not surprised by it, although we know moody's and s & p and all of those guys have been ultraaggressive since blowing the housing bubble and trying to stay ahead of this stuff. also i think they're trying to play a role with respect to finding a solution to this thing. i don't think anybody wants to see our credit rating start to deteriorate. the fact of the matter is, we're winning now because of our legacy. we're winning because we're the only game in town right now. that's the only reason money continues to funnel into america. that's not always going to be the case. we better fix this right now. >> steve: yeah. i was reading about that in politico, that lefty blog last night. what happens if let's say moody's does go ahead and downgrade sinus we got downgraded last year by s & p
7:17 am
and it was a bad couple of days, but steams to bounce back. >> we did bounce back. again, for the most part, if you got a lot of money and you put it in chinese bonds or american bonds right now, put it in american bonds for the moment, not russian bonds or european bonds, but again, it still at some point becomes more expensive. we're talk being debt that's going to cost a trillion dollars a year in interest a year. as these ratings go down, it costs us more and more money to borrow money. >> brian: there is big news today, they did a study, a petroleum study and turns out we could be among the first or second producer in oil production in the world ahead or slightly behind saudi arabia? ahead of russia by 2020? >> yeah. one of the ironies is over the last couple of years, the oil industry, fossil fuel, the evil fossil fuel created so many jobs and so much wealth. look at pennsylvania alone, you got to worry about them coming
7:18 am
under attack, particularly natural gas. you got a big hollywood movie coming out, anti-fracking and all that stuff. >> steve: the president later today will meet interestingly with union leaders and business leaders, tomorrow he'll meet with ceo's and congress and try to avert the fiscal cliff. what do you make of the meeting with the union guys? >> i got a huge beef with this. unions represent only 8% of private sector works. there is no way in the world they should be the first ones up. by the way, this is all look just like his jobs council. nothing but academics, union leaders and gigantic businesses. where is the small business? guys, let me tell you, businesses with less than 50 please created 13,000 jobs. where would the president and the country be without them? they never get a seat at the able. we crush them, we crush any hope for recovery. >> brian: we'll ask the ceo's to get behind a tax increase on the we'lly. that's what the president will ask. >> you don't get it. if you're the ceo with a
7:19 am
$290 billion market cap, it might not bother you that much. let's get mop and mop -- mom and pop, they never get invited. >> steve: we're going to be watching you two hours from now on fox business. it says southerny and company, but really it's payne and people. >> brian: your slogan is -- >> barney is parachuting in, though. he doesn't want me to host two days in a row. >> brian: 19 minutes after the hour. liberals targeting papa john's pizza for taking a stand against obamacare. there is a big movement underway to make sure that does not happen. >> steve: then as the scandal unravels what, will the legacy of general david petraeus be? but will all of that be over? we'll talk to governor mike huckabee. he's next

7:24 am
>> gretchen: thank you, steve. fox news alert, overnight the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, general john allen, now being investigated as well in the scandal surrounding david petraeus. officials say allen was e-mailing the woman in florida who sparked the entire investigation, jill kelly. giving us his take on the scandal, is governor mike huckabee, the author of a new book on a whole different topic. a grandfather's thoughts on faith, family and things that matter most. i can hardly wait to get to that. this is important. this is our legacy that we're leaving to kids. in the meantime, we have this huge scandal that keeps getting bigger and bigger. what do you make of this latest development that general john allen, how could it be that 20 to 30,000 e-mails to this jill kelly who is the one who went to the f.b.i. who got so-called threatening e-mails. >> gee, that makes it real simple, doesn't it? if people wonder why in the
7:25 am
world would i write a book that has nothing to do with politics and scandal, now you know. we don't know what's going on behind the scenes. we don't know what happened. it's all unraveling. the tragedy from my perspective is that you have, in the case of david petraeus, one of the greatest american military heros ever, he was the person who created the way to deal with insurgency. no one had ever done that before. we lost vietnam because we didn't know how to deal with it. people forget this is a warrior. this is a man who put his life on the line there are this country for 38 years. he dodged bullets, literally for us. so i want to be careful that we don't get so wrapped up in the scandal that we don't somehow fail to remember that most all of his career has been that of a distinguished soldier and an honorable who made a huge mistake. like king david, who made a huge mistake, he was still called a man after god's own heart.
7:26 am
i'm just heart broken for david petraeus, his wife and family and all of them. >> gretchen: the other thing that comes to mind for me is will we get lost, will the real news story here about what actually happened in benghazi got lost in the shuffle because we're talking about a sex scandal? >> eventually it will come out because that's where all of this has to lead. what did the president know? when did he know it? in the long-term, i think it will lead us to answers on benghazi that we might not have gotten otherwise. >> gretchen: i want to move on to the fantastic new book that the governor has written "dear chandler, dear scarlet." who are they? >> those are my grandchildren. something happened to me when i became a grandfather. i always heard that this was magic home. i thought come on, please, you know, it can't be that big a deal. but what happened was i started realizing that there are generations that are going to follow me and what will they remember? what will they take? what will i leave for them? some vintage guitar that they'll sell on ebay the minute i'm
7:27 am
gone, or are there big things we should pass on to generations coming after us? the trouble is, for the most part, by the time they're old enough to now, we're gone. this is a election of letters, really republican to every parent and grandparent. it's a book that's intended to be fun and funny and sometimes touching. it's not so much me telling my stories. it's saying to every parent and grandparent, tell your stories, but put it down now while you can so that 30, 40 years from now your kids and your grandkids will be able to read it and understand it. >> gretchen: what i love about this is that you talk about faith and family, but these sometimes seem to be traditions that get lost in the shuffle of our politically correct society. i love that you put it to paper so that your grandkids and so many other people can benefit from it. by the way, here is my favorite picture in the whole book. this is the gov playing his famous bass guitar and hoping his grandchildren also take up
7:28 am
an instrument. >> i want them o make as much noise as they possibly can to drive their parents crazy like their parents drove me crazy. that's part of the book. this is retribution for all the things that their parents did when they were my kids. >> gretchen: final exit question, do you spoil chandler and scarlet more than your own kids? >> absolutely. that's part of the fun, isn't it? that's the whole game is make their parents just cringe. >> gretchen: i know the feeling. my mom and dad do the same thing and my in-laws as well. great to see you. good luck. >> appreciate it. >> gretchen: before he was hanged, someone else tried to take out saddam hussein with a book bomb. then this is not your average rock band. when these guys aren't performing, they're defending our freedom. stick around. ♪

8:00 am
>> gretchen: good morning, everyone. today is tuesday, november 13, 2012. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks for so much for sharing part of your day with us today. fox news alert. while you were sleeping, the petraeus scandal we want from bad to worse. first it was general david petraeus. now general john allen. commander in afghanistan tied to the same woman that played a role in ending petraeus' career. jennifer griffin, our reporter, live with the very latest. >> steve: an illegal immigrant kills an american, but that's not enough to get him deport. the victim's father is outraged and you will hear from him in the next 15 minutes. >> brian: and brace for landing. a plane runs off the runway and
8:01 am
heads straight off the highway. the whole thing caught on camera. that wasn't a reinabilitiment. "fox & friends" starts right now >> brian: we have a "fox & friends" record. six authors on today. this is a big book release today. >> steve: books traditionally come out on tuesdays. it's a tuesday as people start to think about books they're going to buy for christmas. greg gutfeld will be dropping by, trying orgeat to you buy his book. >> brian: right. greg is one of the funniest people on the planet. his book is excellent. one minute after the top of the hour. we have a lot to discuss and a lot of breaking news. but first. >> gretchen: let's get to your headlines. you probably have seen this name on your computer screen. mchas feaa antivirus. the company's founder might be wanted for murder. according to the tech blog, police in belize want to question him about the shooting
8:02 am
death of his neighbor, gregory "fallin." they had been at odds after fall filed a complaint at mcafe, for firing guns. the same report suggests he experimented with drugs and arrested on gun charges. he wanted to blow up the home of former president george w. bush and soon khalid could be call ago prison cell home. in a few hours, a texas judge will sentence him for his plot to attack the former president's home, as well as several nearby power plants. a jury convicted the former texas tech student in june. speculation growing now. senator john kerry may become the new secretary of defense, not secretary of state as many had thought. according to the "washington post," president obama may ask the vietnam veteran to replace leon panetta. panetta plans to stick around for now, though, but probably won't serve a full term. kerry's office says he remains focused on his job as senator. as fort secretary of state, it's
8:03 am
believed the president could nominate u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice, for that position. but she came under scrutiny for appearing on five different sunday shows blaming the terrorist attack in libya on that anti-muslim video. those are your headlines this morning. >> steve: brian. >> brian: two minutes after the top of the hour. first, it was general petraeus who stepped down from his position after getting caught in an extramarital affair. the current commander in afghanistan is linked to that same scandal in some respects. not only did the same woman blow the whistle, the feds say they got 30,000 pages of e-mails to prove there was interaction. what was the interaction like? what do the e-mails consist of? jennifer griffin following the pentagon for us. what's the latest and how did we find out about general allen? >> this story just keeps getting stranger and stranger. now the d.o.d. inspector general is investigating general allen. that case was referred to him
8:04 am
because of this larger investigation that led to the revelations of the affair between paula broadwell, the biographer of david petraeus. petraeus stepped down on friday. now turns out that the woman who started the entire f.b.i. investigation, jill kelly, who is a socialite in tampa bay, florida, who got to know both general petraeus and general john allen when they were serving in tampa a few years ago, she now implicated because they have 20 to 30,000 e-mails between her and general allen that we're told are of a sexual nature, implying some sort of relationship. as you know, according to the uniformed code of military justice, that's a problem for general allen. right now the defense secretary, leon panetta, has essentially put on hold the confirmation hearings for general allen to move to a position of supreme allied commander in europe and
8:05 am
he has asked the senate to move forward very quickly with the confirmation hearing for general joe dunnford who is supposed to take over in afghanistan. all of this coming about as the secretary's on a trip to australia. his spokesman, george little, had it thank to say about the revelations of general john allen. >> this matter is under investigation, and before the facts are determined, general allen will remain commander. general allen is entitled to due process in this matter. >> defense secretary leon panetta responded to -- excuse me, to petraeus' resignation for the first time also on board that plane enroute to australia. >> i think he took the right step and i think it's important when you're director of the c.i.a. with all of the challenges that face you in that
8:06 am
position that that personal integrity comes first and foremost. >> we understand from general petraeus' former executive officer that petraeus had not planned to step down as director of the c.i.a. after the f.b.i. came to him and questioned him about the relationship with broadwell. but last tuesday when the director of national intelligence james clapper approached petraeus about this affair, he indicated to petraeus that he really should step down. that's when petraeus went to the president, offered his resignation late last week. what's also interesting is that the f.b.i., after telling reporters yesterday that the case between petraeus and broadwell had not indicated any breaches of classified information, the f.b.i. was at broadwell's house in north carolina last night and they removed several computers, boxes and boxes of documents. so it appears as if they are
8:07 am
still investigating to see if there were any classified leaks or breaches that may have led to any laws being broken. >> brian: a quick second, we know the attorney general found out about this over the summer. we know robert muller knew about it, f.b.i. director, almost immediately. we know that he was briefing the president on a regular basis. what are the chances that the president actually didn't know until election day that this all was going down and this investigation was taking place? >> it's difficult to say. certainly the house and senate intelligence committees were not notified. we know that from senator diane feinstein. panetta said they had to look why the intelligence committees were not informed. there's a difference of opinion here in washington about whether the f.b.i. needed to -- and whether the justice department and robert muller needed to tell
8:08 am
the president. so i think they wanted to see where the investigation ended up. >> steve: it's ended up on the front page of the paper. thank you very much. let's dial in laura ingraham. she joinses from washington, d.c., scandal central. are you buying the whole business, laura, the president didn't know about it until two days after the election? >> before i answer that question, can we just talk about the fact that we have maybe 70, i believe, last count, insider attack deaths in afghanistan and we apparently have the commanding general in afghanistan with so much time on his hands that he's able to send thousands of e-mails? i mean, how do these individuals -- i'm not talking about the private lives of them, but how do these individuals in positions of such authority where they have the lives of thousands of americans, c.i.a. agents, imbedded agents and now in marines and soldiers, lives in their hands, they have so much time that they can do all these other extracurricular
8:09 am
activities and then they can think it's all fine and nobody will learn about it and they should keep their jobs. for me that, is so disturbing when we have these men and women and i visited them at walter reed, sat with their families as they're being taken off respirators and later lose their lives at age 19 or 20. i find this to be appalling. and believe me, i'm the most flawed person out there. i'm like people live in glass houses, fine. but the idea that we should sit back here and just say, well, this is no national security breach occurred and this is just -- no, no, n. these are men and women who served this country in uniform and proudly. and just -- i mean, i'm stunned by that. i don't buy that the president didn't know about it. no, i don't buy it at all. >> gretchen: okay. >> steve: ron kesler said the president probably knew about it in the spring and the main stream media has been handed these press releases. it wasn't until two days after the election.
8:10 am
>> gretchen: what are the ramifications of that? if the president knew before and didn't say that he knew, what are the ramifications? >> first of all, i think unfortunately, we won't know, will we, because the election went forward and he was reelected. i don't know if it would have affected the reelection or not, but i do believe that there would have probably been a different debate in this election, during this election that would have involved a judgment, foreign policy, management, competence, and a lot of other issues that were just never raised because nobody knew any of this. look, i actually spoke with general petraeus on september 10. i happened to be at the washington nationals game and there were a wunsch of wounded warriors there, we were all talking to them. i spent five minutes talking to petraeus, secretary or third time maybe i met him. nice guy, great guy. this is not about whether he's a nice person or he served his country proudly. this is about the fact that the american people were not told and the president apparently is
8:11 am
not being forth coming about this, about what the f.b.i. knew, why they were investigating private e-mail accounts after six or seven jaraing e-mails were sent. why is the f.b.i. even looking into those? >> gretchen: that's my question because according to these source, they say it was a close call as to whether or not the f.b.i. should have even opened a case initially. so something is not being told about that whole side of the story, in my mind. >> it's very odd. again, when people say, well, no national security was compromised and diane fiennes stein was quick to say on fox news sunday, i was a panelist, she was quick to say, well, there could have been a national security breach. well, excuse me. how do we know there wasn't? how do we know there wasn't a national security breach? they're still going through her files. i used to be a criminal defense attorney back in the day. when they go to your house and start taking your boxes out, they're looking for stuff. maybe there was a breach. >> brian: all i'm going to say is you're looking at the great
8:12 am
estrogen of our generation and i believe that if you have a president that can survive one of the most -- biggest sex scandals that i can remember in my lifetimes and he had the same type of responsibility on his shoulders, the director the c.i.a. said, i'm wondering if he could be cut a little slack and we can investigate a little bit more before james clapper evidently oblivious again, walks into the office on tuesday and said, you should resign. >> i have another question, was this another gutsy call by the administration? was this gutsy, too, just to apparently eric holder briefed about this by muller, eric holder, we're supposed to believe didn't talk to one of his closest friends, one of his closest friends is brack branch he's been at the center of voter i.d. cases, immigration cases against arizona, fast and furious, the refusal to prosecute the new black panther party. eric holder is the fulcrum of what's begun on over the past four years. he's very close to the
8:13 am
president. i do not believe that eric holder would have kept information from the president about a c.i.a. director being a part of a federal investigation. if he did, i think that's incompetent. >> brian: that could be one of the reasons why barak obama is asking him to stay on fort second term. we know you got a lot to talk about on your radio show. you got 45 minutes to prepare. we'll see you next week. >> gretchen: speak of illegal immigration, illegal immigrant kills an american. buff that's not enough to get him deported. the victim's father standing by. >> brian: 12 million bucks for a school that teaches 20 kids.

>> steve: unlicensed illegal immigrant living in the sanctuary city of san francisco, california killed a man with his car, but got to stay in the united states. that is the story of robert gallow, an immigrant from honduras, who on november 16, 2010, hit 25-year-old drew rosen burg with his car.
8:17 am
gallow proceed to do drive over his victim, killing him at the scene. now drew's father has been working tirelessly to get gallow deported when he's released from prison on friday, but has found the laws are not on gallow's side. -- they are on gallow's side. joining us from l.a. is don rosenberg and here is our studio, peter johnson, jr. don, thank you for joining us. we're sorry about the loss of your son. tell us what happened that day in 2010 with drew and mr. goal low. >> well, my son was a second year law student in san francisco. he was coming home from school on his motorcycle riding very slowly. it was rush hour traffic. gallow, at the last second tried to make a left-hand turn and hit him in the intersection. i believe that the original collision didn't kill my son. they were both going very slowly. gallow then accelerated and drove over my son's body.
8:18 am
he couldn't go further because my son's helmet came off and got stuck underneath his wheel. he backed up and drove over him a second time. and then what i believe trying to escape, he then went forward again and only because a very brave person had gotten out of their car and stood in front of his, he stopped. unfortunately, his tire was on my son's abdomen. and five men had to lift the car off him. >> steve: that's just terrible. >> your son drew was 25 years old and he was a law student and we mourn his loss. what did the federal authorities tell you after he was convicted of these misdemeanors? he was originally charged with a felony. did they tell you now there is nothing we can do for you. he will stay in the united states? >> well, after he was sentenced, i approached my congressman, henry waxman, because i wanted to make sure that once gallow was released from prison, he now has his two misdemeanors and
8:19 am
under the temporary protective status law which is not the least bit temporary, but very protective, he should be deported. so i asked their office to contact ice. i wanted him taken into custody the second he got out of prison and then go through the deportation hearings. they did contact ice in san francisco, which told them no, they weren't going to take him into custody and they weren't going to deport him because as far as they were concerned, he had only killed one person and that's only one crime of moral turpitude and his other misdemeanor didn't count. that's just not acceptable. >> what's happened is janet napolitano announced new prosecutial guide loan lanes by which there is a higher threshold by which people are deported in america. some said that was a political move in an election year and frankly, we're seeing the effects of what happened to one particular family, the rosenberg family, steve. >> unfortunately, this happens to thousands of people a year.
8:20 am
if my son's death was a freak accident and didn't really happen a lot, i wouldn't be sitting here now. i'd be dealing with it the best i could. but when i started doing research and i started researching unlicensed. that took me to illegal immigrants. thousands of people a year killed by illegal immigrants and driving. and unfortunately, particularly in california, but nationally, the powers to be are making it easier for them to drive without licenses. >> americans need to speak you want to powers that be. they can write to janet napolitano today. legal course has run. the political source should begin and there should be justice for drew rosenberg. >> steve: all right. don rosenberg, we thank you for joining us today from l.a. and telling your story. >> thank you. i appreciate it. >> steve: peter, thank you. >> thank you. >> steve: bad indeed. meanwhile, 20 minutes after the top of the hour. that's "fox business" network's melissa francis who played

8:26 am
>> gretchen: actually your new book -- this is melissa francis. >> steve: she's all growed up. >> gretchen: "the diary of a stage mother's daughter." i'm glad to see you laughing because this is actually a tragic book of sorts. in the end, there is hope. you've changed the cycle. but you did not have a great childhood. >> in front of the camera, i had a magical childhood. i was in more than 100 commercials and i was on movies and series and when i was working, it was fantastic. we had a really fun time. like the scenes you saw, they had to do a lot of bribing and cajoling to get everyone to perform and do their thing. we had a lot of fun. >> brian: thanks to michael landon. >> my career was fueled by the hollywood version of a tiger mom, a stage mother who poured all of her desire and ambition and time and effort into making me a star. and she was very clever and she worked really hard, but she drove me relentlessly to perfection and achievement in everything. in acting, in school.
8:27 am
an a minus wasn't acceptable. it was inkressant drive. i had an older sister who she treated the same way. and had very different effects. for me, it made me incredibly driven. but for my sister, who couldn't live up to that pressure and couldn't perform and didn't achieve at the same level, it really destroyed her and she shrunk further back. >> brian: how did your mom feel that you wrote the book? she's furious, right? >> well, the whole story sort of comes to an explosive end at the end of the book. from there, we hadn't spoken in more than a decade. >> steve: until? >> until i took my show on fox business out to california, to l.a. >> steve: a week or two ago? >> yeah. and she came in and confronted me and she grabbed me and -- it was scary. i was the kid that she threw
8:28 am
down the stairs or out of the car. >> steve: you were having a flashback to your childhood that my mother is at me again. >> yeah. yeah. and it was just a couple minutes before the show. but luckily she sort of left as quickly as she came. >> gretchen: why was this so important for you to write? you're happily married. you have two beautiful sons. what was the reason? was it cathartic? >> it was really that since people have read it, they come up to me and they say, i had the same experience, but then when they tell me about it, it's actually completely different. and what they're relating to is the idea that you can have a typical childhood, a tremendous hurdle in your past and you can decide, i woke up one day and i just said, i'm going to have a different life. i'm going to break this cycle. i'm not going to do this anymore. and i started a new day where i had a family of my own of the i have a loving husband. i have two beautiful children, a career that i love, and i just started a brand-new life. i think a lot of times people feel stuck in the way that they

were raised and they don't know how to get themselves out of it. my sister, you know, very much got stuck. >> brian: when you first came here, i was yelling at you and trying to rattle you when you came here. and i'm like, why can't i rattle this woman? now i know. because you went through hell as a kid. >> a lot of it, the beginning of the book, most of it is very funny and joyful. and we had a lot of great times. that's what makes it so hard is it's not clear cut. i mean, she did -- she's responsible for so much of my success in life and it did have a lot of positive effects, but then it didn't. >> gretchen: it's a fine line between dedicated parent who invests themselves in a child for all the good and right reasons, and then the ones who just take it a step too far. >> yeah. and it becomes a problem when the child decides that they're going to be an adult and realize they need to have some control over their own life of the that's what spurred me to go across country and go to
8:30 am
harvard. i needed to get away and see if i wanted to do something different, if i could have a life of my own. and that really changed everything for me. >> gretchen: you do. >> steve: it's all in the new book, comes out today "diary of a stage mother's daughter." thank you so much. >> brian: i'm thinking movie. >> we'll see. >> brian: i would like to apply a role. i would like to play something. >> you can be michael landon. >> brian: i'm studying now. does the kid ever get out of the bear trap? >> no, that's jason bateman. no one ever heard of him again. >> brian: this is an unhappy story. poor jason. >> gretchen: coming up, check out this shocking video right here. yep, that's a plane running right off the runway, headed straight for the highway. the whole thing caught on camera. we'll tell you what happened. >> steve: greg gutfeld is here. he's got a beef with main stream media and their phony manufactured outrage. that's his phony manufactured

8:36 am
we got a health care system problem. i worried about our military. so these same problems exist and we're going to have to find a way of finding common ground to make them work. >> brian: you can see the disappointment in his face. >> steve: absolutely. >> brian: obviously it's got to be crushing. new jersey one of the hardest hit by super storm sandy. the governor ended the gas rationing. saying the supplies have been replenished, but there is still a lot of work to be done, especially down south and by the shore for life to be normal. molly line is live with more. >> two weeks later, there is still these pockets of misery. this is just one of the many streets we've seen all across new jersey and new york. people belongings out on the streets. the water on this street, webber avenue, came all the way up to the telephone lines and caused this kind of damage. some of the homes literally washed out underneath. their foundations affected. going to make things more difficult. that's one of the things there is still power outages across the state.
8:37 am
much of the power has been restored in a lot of places. the numbers different depending on who you ask. it's reported yesterday that there were still over 5,000 people without power, but by the later afternoon, state officials said there were about 1,000 people still without power. you can see this neighborhood all banged up all across the state. a few pockets of good news despite devastation, what many homeowners are still going through about 99% or more of the schools have been reopened. so the bright spot for the kids. some efforts to get things back to normal. some of the schools will have to be created to finish getting things open. the gas rationing has ended in new jersey. but still a tough situation. people still waiting to hear from fema, waiting to hear from their insurance companies trying to get some sort of estimate on how much they're going to have, how quickly they can rebuild. and it's tough to schedule contractors, when you see a neighborhood like this, this is all up and down the block. back to you. >> steve: molly line where it's raining today, thank you very much.
8:38 am
as for the gas lines in new jersey yesterday, absolutely no lines. if you wanted gas, you just drove right up and there was some guy waiting to pump your tank full. >> brian: in new york, they did a brilliant thing. waited two weeks, watched new jersey do it effectively. keep it up. that's the rationing. we got the rationing down when we got the gas back. >> gretchen: let's get to your headlines now. he was held in contempt of congress for failing to turn over documents on the botched fast and furious operation. but president obama is apparently holding on to eric holder. the "new york post" reports the president asked him to stay on for a second term and holder agreed. holder also facing criticism for reportedly knowing months ago that david petraeus was under investigation by the f.b.i. and never informed the president. >> steve: long before he was hanged, saddam hussein dodged death by a book bomb. according to a new documentary called "sealed lips," the israeli intelligence agency, sent him an exploding book back
8:39 am
in the 1970s. he was so paranoid, evidence an iraqi official open the package. the bomb blew up and killed the guy. saddam hussein was executed in 2006 after being captured by u.s. troops as he was hiding in a spider hole. >> brian: a photographer shooting a scenic time lapse video in montreal when the unexpected happened. watch. a fire broke out. they gutted a six story building and lit up the night sky. this is the first time he tried make a time lapse video and one he won't forget. no one hurt in the fire. >> steve: more unbelievable video out of brazil. security camera caught that -- look at that corporate jet as it skidded over an embankment. imagine the drivers on that highway right there. the pilot was seriously hurt. the two passengers were able to escape with just minor injuries. what's today? >> gretchen: tuesday. >> brian: monday night football happened last night. win turning into what could be a big loss for the steelers.

8:41 am
having that heart attack live on the air two months ago. >> gretchen: coming up next on "fox & friends," greg gutfeld is here. you know him from "the five." he's got a beef with the main stream media and their phony manufactured outrage. it's all in his new book. >> brian: he can't exist without four other people. >> steve: there you go. thank you. he's in studio e now. then this woman busted driving on the sidewalk to speed past the school bus. now her punishment is in and you're looking at it. little public humiliation. something that greg gutfeld knows about. he's next.

packed tighter than leaper's island. i don't know what that means. so let's do this, america. >> gretchen: fantastic. >> brian: i just did a greg gutfeld impersonation. >> i think it should have been lemur's island. >> i just pick an arbitrary animal and makes fun of its attributes. >> steve: the book is called "the joy of hate, how to triumph over whiners in the day of outrage." go to have you. >> you don't mean that. >> steve: yes, i do. this is tv talk. phony outrage emanates predominantly from the left, you say. >> right. they operate under the guise of tolerance in order to shut you up. basically it's this faux anger at everything that you say to score points politically. >> steve: give us an example. >> i wish i had some. >> gretchen: come on. >> brian: it's in your book. take something from the book. >> why do you do this to me?
8:47 am
>> gretchen: the election. >> for example, let's say you voted for president obama in 2008. hooray. then in 2012, you're not voting for him. then you're probably a racist. that's your honor the guise of tolerance because in the world of open mindedness, any time you deviate from the ideology of the left, you are considered a bigot. so then you find yourself trying to explain no, maybe i don't like his policies and they're like, yeah, right. we know how you really feel. that's how phony tolerance works. i call it the tolaradi. those are people who claim to be tolerant when they meet a conservative or libertarian, they hate you. but they use the mantle of tolerance as a guise. >> brian: how did you get the steady cam? how did you get ted on the steady cam. how much money do you have? >> ted and i have been living together forly years. >> brian: take a shot of ted. his life partner. >> gretchen: your wife is
8:48 am
on-line -- >> my wife is not up yet. >> gretchen: what about the double standard? this one rings true with me, with regard to religion. it's okay to make fun of christians, but not other religions. >> let's look, you can do the book of mormon. i live near the -- where it plays. people come out, they love it. it's fantastic. but if you do a where is mohammed car too. all the people who run the tolerance, they didn't run the cartoon of the they actually suffer from islamphobia. they point to the writer and conservatives and go, because you're upset about the mosque near the world trade center remains -- >> brian: you're anti-muslim. let's talk about the occupy movement and compared to the tea party movement. that's the impetus by why a guy of your intellect writes a book like this. >> it drove me nuts. the media in part drove most of this because they see themselves in the romantic ideals of the occupy movement when, in fact, everything about the occupy movement was an attack on
8:49 am
american values. whereas, the tea party celebrated smaller government and basically individual liberty, which to them, to a reporter, to the media, reminds them of their parents. whereas occupy wall street reminds them of their romantic self that never really existed. so they elevate these people that are basically soiling the streets, while insulting people that actually have jobs and work for a living. i always say that the sea party people never break windows because they own the windows. >> steve: your book is how to triumph over whiners. you kind of are whining yourself. >> you're absolutely right. i mention that in the book that i'm as guilty as this and i try to temperate with humor so when you start to get angry, you have to stop and go, this is stupid. like for example, if you're on-line and you're getting mad at comments on a web site, like -- you got to get out, leave the room, and go talk to another human being. unfortunately, i don't have any
8:50 am
friends. >> gretchen: you do, too. >> no, i don't. >> steve: it's not just the funny book, it's not just a serious book, it's a funny serious book that is very good. check it out. it's called "the joy of hate" by that man. >> brian: gretchen will stay up and watch you on "red eye." >> will you? when are you coming on? you won't come on. >> brian: i do come on. >> you do come on. he hosted pour me once. to them, it's like doing an adult film. >> gretchen: it's a stunning statisticment coming up, one in eight babies born prematurely each year, but there is a movement happening now to make sure that doesn't happen. first, let's check in with bill hemmer. >> tell greg back to the basement. [ laughter ] >> steve: that story is true? >> who gave you a key? >> yeah. i have the activity pit all ready. there is an activity pit. it's where bill sleeps. >> good luck on the book.

8:55 am
doing average. we're a c. >> that's right. that's right. we're object the right track, but we could be doing a lot better. the united states has one of the highest rates of preterm birth of any country in the world. but we've been getting progressively better for the last five years, so that's the good news. and the other news is that we're on the right track and we just need to keep focused and do the right things, right policies and good leadership. >> gretchen: this costs millions and billions of dollars annually, premature birth. >> it does. the institute of medicine estimates $26 billion a year in excess health care costs related to prematurity. so we have a good economic reason to prevent this condition. >> gretchen: i serve as a volunteer spokesperson for march of dimes. i was at your national conference of leadership volunteers a couple weeks ago in fellow there where you released the great news that there are now four states that have achieved an a grade vermont, oregon, new hampshire, maine. what are they doing right?
8:56 am
>> practically everything right for ma term and child health. they've got their pregnant women into good health care coverage, good smoking cessation coverage. very, very good data integration between clinics and hospitals and providers. they're just doing a wonderful job, but the rest of the states are moving in the right direction as well. >> gretchen: all right. also you have a petition at march of right now. you want to light the white house purple, which is the color of march of dimes. >> go and sign the petition to light the white house purple. this is a day of awareness for the half million families every year who have babies born preterm. so we think it's very important, a rallying cry. >> gretchen: great to see you and congratulations on the success. >> thank you. >> gretchen: more "fox & friends" two minutes away c-max has a nice little trait, you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate.
